(o) Approximately.
At 2150 hours, in poor visibility, a submarine was sighted at close range. It did not answer the recognition signals. H,6 moved away and at 2155 hours, fired a stern torpedo from a distance of 1,000 metres. It missed. The attack is either on a non-sub target (no British submarine operated in the area) or H.1, operating a few miles to the west, was attacked in error.
